Summer Reading List


I really can't believe we are already halfway through Summer. Lately I've been laying low, setting up picnics, and grinding my way through as many books possible while enjoying the sunshine. My goal has been 2 books a week, and so far, so good. I find myself reading everywhere. Before work, commuting to work, after work.. while waiting for a table. It's getting a little out of control. Below are 3 books that I'm currently reading, and 3 books that I've recently read. We have a delicious mix of short stories, murder mysteries, and dark humor. Whether you are headed to the beach this weekend and need a good read, or hiding in the break room to get a chapter in, this list has your back. Challenging you to pick up one of these books this weekend and start digging in. 

currently reading

  • Florida, by Lauren Groff. I absolutly loved the book Fates and Furies, so while browsing the store, I was excited to see Groff was back. Take the landscape, history, and crazy climate of Florida and turn it into short story form. I'm not one to usually go for short stories, but open to the challenge. Also, are you dying over this cover or what?
  • Calypso, by David Sedaris.  I've called the Carolina Coast my second home all my life, so when I read that this book took place there, I was automatically sold. Looking forward to laughing my way through this.
  • Clock Dance, by Anne Tyler.  A bittersweet novel about hope and regret, this book takes us through an everyday life of a woman, and proving that its never too late to change paths.

recently read & loved

  • The Great Alone, by Kristin Hannah. This might have been my favorite read of the entire year. I've always been a fan of Hannah's work, but found myself completely mesmerized with this one. The book plopped me down in wild lands of Alaska, and I never wanted to leave. Please, please, pick this one up.
  • The Wife Between Us, by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. It wouldn't be a summer reading list without a suspenseful marriage book. I read this book in 2 days, finding myself going crazy trying to figure out the twists and turns. 
  • The Woman in the Window, by A.J. Finn. Oh gosh, this one was a page turner. It drags you through the deep layers of the human brain in while questioning each and every character. Try it out, friends.
